(back) Subject: Bish owning a Rodgers... From: "Nick Grbac" <NickGTV@webtv.net> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 03:00:23 -0800 (PST)   As no one has really addressed this subject, should she be taken to task?   Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Rodgers rebuild (or, now that I think about it, build from scratch) the current Coral Ridge console some years ago? That being the case, it seems logical there had been a past relationship with Rodgers and that she might've picked up a Rodgers (possibly at a discount) some years ago.   OTOH, Ms. Bish's more recent relationship with Allen appears to be a pure marketing decision on their part. Allen apparently had been planning the George Wright line of Allen TO's for a while; it then follows they'd also look for a nationally known organist to design a line of classic/church models.   I suppose it'd be nice if Allen gave her a top-of-the- line model, but if you've read Jerome Markowitz's book on Allen history, the company wouldn't loan Virgil Fox a touring organ (like Rodgers did)--he had to buy it. Do you think Allen is gonna hand Ms. Bish an Allen?   NickGTV

Advise if you need a copy- both out of copyright. regards Dick Siegel

(back) Subject: I find it interesting... From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 06:49:56 -0600   I find it interesting that the other day Darryl Miller posted a request the other day asking for help in preparing a Service Music list for his AGO Chapter. And only one person has responded that I am aware of on the list. Thank you Bruce!   This has been one of the strengths of this list in the past, that we HELP each other and this request from Darryl was a request that many of us could help with. We seem to be able to waste lots of bandwidth fighting with each other over trivial things but can't be bothered to answer a request that might help many people beyond just those on this list.   Since i don't play in a church any longer i really don't have anything to respond with on this thread but i know that many of you do play regularly and should have a list of pieces that could be added. How about it folks??   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org  
(back) Subject: Dallas Question From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 06:55:21 -0600   Yesterday we had lunch in a little Italian restaurant in the Lakewood (?) Shopping Center and noticed the Lakewood Theatre across the way. I seemed to remember that this theatre has a Robert Morton organ installed in it. Following our lunch we did walk around a bit and looked at the outside of the theatre and ended up talking to a couple of guys that were entering the building. One of them confirmed that the building does hold an organ but that it is currently out of the building for rebuilding.   Does anyone have any information about this?   Thanks   David

I did note in scanning that Bruce responded, and briefly wondered to what was he responding.   If there is still time to reply for your purposes, will you please resend = me the message, and I will try to think of something, useless as my = suggestions generally are. You can thank me later.   Regards,   Glenda Sutton

(back) Subject: Young British Virtuoso in NYC Recital From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonahall@indiana.edu> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 08:05:46 -0500   Hello!   The Church of the Epiphany, York Avenue at East 74th St.in Manhattan, is pleased to host Clive Driskill-Smith, a rising star of the organ, in recital on Wednesday, April 4, 2001, at 1 PM. Clive is the Royal College of Organists' "Performer of the Year" for 2000, and will shortly take up duties as sub-Organist of Christ Church, Oxford.   This recital is free and open to the public.   Mr. Driskill-Smith will perform works by Messiaen, Bach, Dupre, Reger, Bovet, and several others in a far-ranging and exciting program on the church's historic Aeolian-Skinner organ.   Appended to the bottom of this message is a biography of Mr. D-S if you would like to know a bit more.   See you there!   Jonathan Hall Organist/Choirmaster The Church of the Epiphany       CLIVE DRISKILL-SMITH was born in 1978 and educated at Eton College, where = he was a music scholar. He began learning the organ at the age of 15 and, during his 'gap' year, served as Organ Scholar at Winchester Cathedral and as Assistant Organist at Winchester College. The following year he went up to Christ Church, Oxford University, as the Christopher Tatton Organ Scholar. He graduated in 1999 with a First Class Honours degree in Music, and is now reading for the MPhil.   Clive is also active as a pianist and bassoonist. He holds the ARCM = diploma in Piano Performance and continues to give solo recitals and concerto performances. From 1992 to 1994, he played the bassoon in the National = Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and in the National Youth Chamber Orchestra. During this time, he performed with the orchestra at Birmingham's Symphony Hall, London's Barbican Centre, Royal Festival Hall and at the BBC Proms = in the Royal Albert Hall.   Clive studies the organ with David Sanger and, on gaining the FRCO = diploma, was awarded the prestigious Limpus Prize and the Worshipful Company of Musicians' Silver Medal. In 1999, the Royal College of Organists awarded = him a Travelling Scholarship which has funded further study on the Continent with Hans Fagius, Jan Willem Jansen and Dr Harald Vogel. He has given recitals in Westminster Cathedral and St Paul's Cathedral, broadcast live = on Radio and Television, and recorded as both soloist and accompanist. His extensive repertoire spans six centuries and includes the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen. His involvement with choirs has taken him on = tour in the USA, South America, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong and New Zealand.   In September 2000, he was awarded first prize in the Royal College of Organists' international 'Performer of the Year' Competition, the final of which was accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and broadcast on = BBC Radio 3. In October 2000, he was a prizewinner in the Cambridge Organists' Association 'Bach 2000' Competition. During the next two years, Clive will undertake major recital tours in Europe, the USA, Australasia and the Far East. -----------------

(back) Subject: Re: Organist, Choirmaster, or BOTH From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 21:19:13 +0800   Sorry! That last message of mine came over wrong. What I meant is that to have a choirmaster is the exception. There are few choirs in any churches in this state these days, except for "praise bands" as you people call them. Where there are choirs the organist would probably be also the choirmaster, and except in cathedrals and large churches would be unpaid.   Bob Elms wrote: > > To have an organist AND a choirmaster in West Australia would be the > exception rather than the rule.

You can be sure I know the history of every one. I didn't say things were great. The total number of organs is not all that much, but most of the churches are very small also. The large churches are mainly Catholic and have few pipe organs. Bob E.   Roy Redman wrote: > > I am glad to hear that things are great there.

(back) Subject: Re: Tempered Organs in Worship From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 21:40:34 +0800   I'm afraid I agree with Oboe32. Why should a church compromise and have anything played in Ab or some allied key sound as if the organ has never been tuned? To my mind equal temperament at least fits all the organ repertoire, and any hymn no matter what the key. Bob E.    
(back) Subject: Re: toss-up From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 21:49:14 +0800   Well Bud I will agree with you but Bruce will never do that. I play sometimes a six rank tracker in an Anglican Church here, and also a large Johannus in the Catholic Church. Give me the JOhannus any day. The Anglican organ reduces me to playing treble staff with both hands and bass with feet to make myself heard. The Johannus sounds good and handles the large RC congregation with ease. But then Bruce doesn't listen to recordings!!! He is missing something I think! Bob Elms.    
(back) Subject: diacritics (Danish vs German) From: <ALamirande@aol.com> Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 09:24:52 EST     --part1_2d.989c900.27f49fb4_boundary Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   In German and Swedish (also in Finnish, an unrelated language), the umlaut = is used over vowels to indicate a different pronunciation from the unaccented =   letter.   In Danish (and Norwegian), the accent mark used for the same purpose is a slash through the letter. I'm sure there's a term for it in Danish and Norwegian, but I don't know offhand what that might be.   So, while still in Denmark, the Moller family would have spelled the name with a slash through the "o". After coming to America, they substituted = the more familiar umlaut --- I would suppose because American typesetters at that time didn't possess the Danish font.   Moeller would be a correct alternative spelling, if no umlaut is = available. (As in Scho"nberg =3D Schoenberg; Ho"ller =3D Hoeller; Go"the =3D Goethe; = etc. Sorry, I don't have a German computer, or I could put that diacritic = directly over the "o".)   Other European languages have an assortment of diacritics. In French, = there is an accent mark placed UNDERNEATH the "c" --- it's called a cedilla --- = to indicate that the "c" takes an "s" sound. In Czech, there is what looks = like an inverted carat (^ upside down) which when placed over an "r" gives it the sound of zh --- = as in Dvorak. In Polish, an "l" with a slash through it takes a "w" sound = --- as in Lodz. (The actual "w" takes a "v" sound.) And if you really want = to see some unusual diacritics, try Romanian, Lithuanian, and Latvian! (Ages =   ago, I was organist in a Lithuanian church in New York: Our Lady of = Vilnius, located near the Holland Tunnel in lower Manhattan. They were still conducting the Mass in Latin, with hymns in Lithuanian.)   Of course, Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, and Serbian are written in the Cyrillic alphabet; while Greek has its own alphabet (from which, actually, =   Cyrillic is derived).   Afterthought: Jesus said: "Love your enemies.

(They seem very quick to hold a grudge, and very slow to let go of =   one.)   Of course, Jesus also said: "I have come not to bring peace, but a = sword."
